A giant cross was recently planted near the site in Ukraine of a wartime murder of more than 30,000 Jews, according to the Jewish Agency for Israel. The cross near Babi Yar, where SS officers helped by Ukrainian militias committed the killings in 1941, sits close to a menorah commemorating the atrocity.
